Winner of the World Cinema Documentary Directing Award at the Sundance Film Festival 2018

In 1992, teenage VHS-bootlegger Sandi Tan and her fellow film-geek pals Jasmine Ng and Sophie Siddique shot Singapore’s first road movie with their enigmatic American mentor, Georges. The film was called “Shirkers.” Sandi wrote the script and played the lead, S, a 16-year-old assassin collecting and then eliminating her own tribe. After shooting wrapped, Georges absconded with all of the 16mm footage…

The 16mm Kodak cans are recovered 20 years later, sending Sandi, now a novelist in Los Angeles, on a personal, singular odyssey across two continents in search of Georges’ vanishing footprints—and her own.

Sandi Tan is one of Variety’s 10 Documentary Filmmakers to Watch 2018, and one of Indiewire’s 10 Rising Female Filmmakers of 2018.
